As if her recent exit after a long tenure with the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and skipping of the Season 9 reunion weren’t enough, Lisa Vanderpump’s latest comments about her emotional year signal the start of a new chapter. In addition to her public uncoupling with the Bravo reality series she starred on for nearly a decade, LVP recently reflected on the other difficult losses that have plagued her year.
On July 18, Entertainment Tonight caught up with the restaurant owner at a Project Angel Food event in Los Angeles where she discussed how the losses of her brother in April and mother in June impacted her current outlook:
Naturally, conversation soon turned to Vanderpump’s much-discussed departure from RHOBH. She told the outlet that during her challenging year, which included opening restaurants Tom Tom and Vegas’s Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, she didn’t get the support she needed. "It just became very difficult and I just said, ‘Oh, OK. That’s enough,’" Vanderpump revealed, adding that she didn’t "regret it at all" when she stepped away from RHOBH. "What I regret is the fact that my exit wasn’t as positive as some of the wonderful moments I’ve had on the show," she continued. "But sometimes it’s just what life throws at you, isn’t it?"
As for a future with the franchise, Vanderpump admitted she’s "kind of closed the door." But, no worries, Vanderpump Rules fans, it’s not going anywhere any time soon. LVP explained:
At the end of the day, Vanderpump told ET that despite "a lot of negativity" surrounding her circumstances with RHOBH, her relationship with Bravo is as clear as a diamond. "Bravo’s been incredible to me, and I don’t want to see them bashed for anything because it’s given me an incredible platform to do wonderful things, and I’m very thankful for that," LVP admitted.
After a tumultuous year, Vanderpump is looking towards a brighter back-half of 2019.
